Q.

14 week vaccination (prevenar/pcv)

Hi doc, trust you well.
Had my daughter at the local clinic 2 weeks ago for her 14 week vaccination, she was given the vaccinations she was suppose to get but the " Government"  Prevenar was out of stock at the time and still is. Getting this vaccination privately is very expensive.

Is any harm being caused by waiting till the " Government stock"  arrives?

Plse advise
regards,
N

There should be no harm in waiting for the Prevenar stock to arrive.
